Meet the artists after the show on 30.03

Prolific and relentlessly working, Karine Ponties draws her strength from the inexhaustible breeding ground of our states, our thoughts, our intuitions, and our sensations. Captured in the daily life that encloses and encumbers us, whispering behind our backs and suddenly catching up with us.

If we were to mingle the words of Karine Ponties and Georges Perec, they would say together: ‘We are never prepared for the world. Living means moving from one space to another while trying not to crash into it. You have to sneak into the breach and hold your breath, so nothing can escape.’

Le complot du quotidien (The plot of everyday life) transforms the triviality of movement into an absurd universe. The two performers juggle with the overabundant impediments and accidents in an attempt to magnify them in the centre of the stage, turning them upside down, transforming them, and imbuing them with fantasy. This is an invitation to contemplate the world and its day-to-day reality with surprise, humour, and intensity.

Evening made of 2 pieces (cf. M-Ondes).
